My name is Adam Hoffman, aged 33, happily married to Roni and father of two, lives in Kibbutz Hahotrim. I have acquired my first degree at Haifa University Via a leadership NAVY officer program (IDF).

At the end of the military service (at the age of 26) I began studying at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, in a double course of chemistry and material engineering. I made the academic choice as a result of  my father’s home, that he is an academic in this field, and the understanding that in order to purchase an engineering “toolbox” I must learn starting  from the scientific foundations to the engineering applications. I completed my first degree in 2016, in 2014 I started a startup company in the field of synthetic diamond for diverse industrial applications. In understanding that the use of material can promote the economy and society in various fields.

Today, the company has expanded to several areas and employs about 50 employees, most of them are Technion alumni engineers.

I am familiar with the faculty today as a high quality jump board to the most advanced industrial worlds in Israel and abroad.
